Hard times, more than any others, reveal to us the truth that the signature of our humanity is our emotional nature. What differentiates us from stones and butterflies is the degree to which what happens to us affects us on an emotional level. We don’t just experience things ― get a divorce, lose our house, watch our dog die from eating poison ― we have feelings about these events. It is the depth and nuance of our feelings ― of our joy, sorrow, anger, and fear ― that give texture to our humanity.

Manifesting is a natural and normal process but, since we have often been brought up to believe that achieving things requires time, patience and hard work, manifesting is a skill we need to develop. Like any other skill, it requires practice. Essentially, it is a mind-set, and we need to be thinking and feeling a certain way to get the manifesting process to work.
Be very specific
You need to have a clear image of what you intend to manifest. How does it look and feel, what is the experience of having it like? Try to visualize yourself in the position of receiving the abundance you desire. If you enjoy writing, then write a vivid description of what it is like. If you can paint or draw, then render an image of what you intend to manifest. Do whatever you need to do in order to get a clear, precise picture of what you intend.
Are you ready to get exactly what you want? Like so many I’ve asked before you, I hear you emphatically responding, “Yes!” Great! It’s yours! But…what is it, exactly? And if you actually got it, what price would you have to pay?
You don’t have to pay any price. Your dreams are ready and waiting for you to bring them to life. But shifting gears to focus on the creation of our dreams sometimes feels like a lot of work, and much of it not destined to produce results. It often seems that if we would only work harder on the current realities before us, we would get what we want through sheer focus of will.
